2016 Topps Star Wars High Tek Patterns Guide, Gallery and Checklist

2016 Topps Star Wars High Tek Patterns Guide, Gallery and Checklist

Base Patterns

As many now know, Tek comes with quite a few pattern designs and varying rarity. This acetate Star Wars set is no different and the 2016 Topps Star Wars High Tek Patterns continue the format with new options along with some familiar designs.

Like 2015 Star Wars High Tek, there appears to be five different design tiers. While some of the patterns match the 2015 release, several debut patterns enter the mix. Of course, this can lead to confusion and that is where we come in. It is important to realize that the main checklist is essentially split in half to make two "Forms" that decide how the patterns are utilized. Form 1 (all designs on the left) cover base cards #1 to #56, while Form 2 (all designs on the right) work within cards #57 to #112.

That is not all for 2016 Topps Star Wars High Tek! Collectors can find multiple numbered parallels with different color accents, as well as base image variations, distinguished by the extra letter (A, B, or C) on the card's back. Of course, the variations also have a different image on the front for the key characters.

This guide should be considered a work in progress. The patterns are shown in order of scarcity with the most common first and the rarer options further down the list. A full checklist can be seen using the tab above.
